What I do

Elena Oyon is Learning Services Manager for the Alliance for Useful Evidence. Elena’s role involves managing the delivery of the Alliance’s evidence masterclasses and working with Nesta’s Skills team to help build its learning and development offer with a specific focus on quality and impact.


Elena has a background in managing and delivering capacity building interventions within the international development and humanitarian sectors for UN agencies, international non-governmental organisations and national governments.

She is a practised facilitator and has delivered training in the UK and overseas on topics including training of trainers, monitoring and evaluation, humanitarian coordination and disaster risk reduction. Elena became interested in the use of evidence and research in the design of interventions while evaluating sustainable development projects in Nicaragua.

When not at work, Elena enjoys exploring by going for walks in the British countryside and, where possible, travelling further afield.
